Yes. My biggest pet peeve while working at a daycare is that so many parents would not follow that rule. I brought home sooo many illnesses I ended up having to quit because at one point something I brought home nearly killed my daughter. So for my DS I do go by that rule. He didn't miss any school the first quarter this year, but missed like 8 days the second quarter and so far one day this quarter. The day he missed last week was because he projectile vomited ALL over my room and even though I was fairly certain by bedtime it was a one time thing, I kept him home the next day just in case. I was right, it wasn't a bug, but better safe than sorry. Tummy bugs spread FAST in a classroom setting!
